A-G Asked to Publish Opinion on Levy Committee Report


The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel demanded, Thursday, that Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein publish his legal opinion on the Levy Committee report, which prevents the report from being accepted, in its entirety, by the government. The committee, headed by former Supreme Court Justice Edmond Levy, concluded, in July, that Israel's presence in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) is not an occupation and that Jewish communities there are legal under international law. It recommended that unauthorized communities be authorized.

Forum executive director Nachi Eyal said, "The public has a right to know what the attorney general found invalid in the entire report, which is signed by first-rate judges and legal advisors."
